"For The Hope which is laid up for you in Heaven,
which you first heard in The Word of Truth that is the Good News”! (Col 1:5)
"The Good News"
“The Hope of Heaven!”
There is a 'biblical' translation that has been called “The Good News”.
But what of The Good News(The Gospel)?
What was the promise of The Good News that The Messiah preached?
The promise of The Good News for the Jews and “the lost sheep of Israel”, which The Messiah preached, was recorded in Matthew 3:12,4:17,10:7, Mark 1:15, and Luke 10:9, 21:31.
"The Kingdom Of GOD(Heaven) Is At Hand"
And what was the promise of “The Good News” which Paul preached unto the heathen(gentiles) after GOD “raised The Messiah from among the dead”?
“Through the Good News those who are not Jews(gentiles/heathens) will share with the Jews in GOD's blessing. They belong to the same body, and they share together in the promise that GOD made in The Messiah. By GOD's special gift of Grace given to me through HIS power, I became a servant to tell that Good News.” (Eph 3:6-7)
And The Good News of The Promise?
“The Kingdom Of Heaven(GOD) Is At Hand!"
A Lively, Living Hope Of Heaven!
When Paul began his ministry, after GOD had “raised up The Messiah from among the dead”, he testified that “believers were translated into The KINGDOM OF GOD'S BELOVED SON”. (Col 1:13)
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN HAD COME!
And “The Good News” after the destruction of the temporal, earthly,
natural temple realm centered in old jerusalem?
THE KINGDOM OF OUR FATHER and GOD IN HEAVEN HAS COME!
For as Paul testified, at that time "The Messiah delivered up The Kingdom unto Our Father and GOD"!
All Thanks And Praise Be Unto Our Father!
So believers have a Living Hope of Heaven!
Why is it so many still believe that “The Kingdom of GOD(Heaven)” is yet to come?
"What is Truth"?
"Pilate" asked The Messiah that question after The Messiah testified, "You say that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause I came into the world, that I should bear witness to The Truth. Everyone that is of The Truth hears My voice"! (John 18:38)
Do you hear The Messiah’s voice?
The Messiah previously had testified, "The Words that I speak are not My Words”.
“For I have not spoken of Myself; but The Father which sent Me, HE gave me a com-mandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.” (John 3:34, 12:49) Later The Messiah testified to His disciples, "As GOD sent Me, so send I you"! (John 14:10)
"What is Truth”?
The Messiah bore witness unto The Truth, as He revealed The Way to The Truth of The Life, both in His Teachings and Life example, both of which were given Him by Our Father.
And The Truth of “The Good News” promise?
The Kingdom Of GOD(Heaven) Is At Hand"!
The Hope Of Heaven!
